I'm using Microsoft Outlook on my desktop as part of my Microsoft 365 subscription.

When setting recurrence for new tasks and depending on which "Recurrence Pattern" I select, I get different default settings in the "Range Of Recurrence", as follows:-

DAILY - "End By" radio button is selected and defaults to 84 days (have no idea why)
WEEKLY - "End By" radio button is selected and defaults to 168 days (have no idea why)
MONTHLY - "End By" radio button is selected and defaults to 12 months (have no idea why)
YEARLY - "No End Date" radio button is selected by default

I have hundreds of tasks with differing recurrences and I suspect that I have Daily, Weekly and Monthly tasks which I intended to have no end date, but saved the default, as above.

I would like a report of tasks (Daily/Weekly/Monthly) with recurrences that DO NOT have "No End Date" activated.

The purpose of the feature is to track a task from start to finish. You say I would like a report of tasks (Daily/Weekly/Monthly) with recurrences that DO NOT have "No End Date" activated.
What exactly do you want it to do? All the choices are in your .jpeg.

Thanks Corday

The reason for my request is that I suspect that I have some recurring tasks set up that have defined end dates because of the defaults that I mentioned earlier BUT that it was my intention NOT to have end dates.

I have hundreds of tasks and I suppose I could spend a couple of hours going through each one and checking if the "no end date" flag should be activated. I just thought there might be a way to do it faster (and to have a control report going forward).

I know that there is an option to export, but that does not seem to export all the data.

Thanks for help so far.
